About the Book:

Liz Savoy has no plans to date anyone—least of all the dark handsome mystery man who sometimes inhabits the corner table at the coffee shop where she’s working to get through school. But plans change, sometimes in ways no one expected.

Jake McCoy is the next mega-millionaire author, or at least he would be if he could get the stories in his head down on the ether. With no good place to write, he resorts to dark corners in Wi-Fi hotspots, knowing no one in the world cares about him or his comings and goings one way or the other. However, there is one waitress at The Grind coffee shop with a cute smile and kind eyes who doesn’t seem to think he is as invisible as he likes to think he is. Can reality with her ever hope to match the fantasy world where his imagination has him living?

About the Book

Just out of college and completely alone in the world, Maggie Montgomery has one shot left to save her life from an abyss of poverty and hopelessness. Clinging to the last shred of fuel and hope, she arrives at the mansion of Texas billionaire Conrad Ayer. Although Maggie is clearly not what Mr. Ayer and his wife have in mind for a nanny, they agree to hire her temporarily until they can find someone more appropriate to fill the position. However, Maggie’s whole world is about to be up-ended by two way-over-scheduled children and one incredibly handsome hired hand. As she struggles to fit into a world she was never made to fit in, Maggie wonders if she can ever learn to become a perfect version of herself so she can keep the job, or is she doomed to always be searching for a life she can never quite grasp?

Keith Ayer despises his life. As the son of Texas billionaire Conrad Ayer and the fiance to a Senator from Texas’ daughter, it looks great on the outside, but inside, he is dying. He would vastly prefer to manage and train his father’s racehorses. However, everyone else thinks that is beneath him. He needs to get into industry and build on his father’s success. Suffocating under the constrictions of his life, he meets Maggie, and she begins to teach him that wealth and power is not everything in this life. But can Keith defy the two most powerful men in Texas to follow his heart?

Behind the Scenes & A Giveaway

A 12-Year Odyssey

by:  Staci Stallings

If you live long enough, you will realize if you’re paying attention, that things don’t always turn out the way you thought they would.  That is definitely true with my newest release, “The Easy Way Out.”

This book has literally been a 12-year Odyssey, and what the process of publication has taught me resonates in many other areas in my life.

First the story…

In 2001, I put out the first book in The Friendship Series (it wasn’t called that at the time, that’s an incarnation that’s evolved over the 12 years).  The first book was called “Eternity.”  At the time I was just beginning in the publishing world.  I was eager and fragile.  I didn’t realize there were sharks in the water and people who, though they said they were on your team, really weren’t.  I had a publicist who thought her job was to run my life from New York.  It wasn’t going well, and really, I should have cut that tie long before I did.  But again, I was young and eager to please whoever would help me get my writing out there, so I made some very bad decisions in that pursuit.

My publicist read and RAVED about “Eternity.”  She just loved it!  She booked me on some TV spots and book signings and all of that stuff that makes you think you’ve finally “made it.”  I was totally thrilled. I couldn’t wait to capitalize on my budding career, so I sent her the second book in the series, “The Easy Way Out.”

Then I waited.  And waited.  And waited. I didn’t hear back for a long time, and then I got an email.  She said she had given the book to a friend of hers who was “in the industry” to read, and they “just didn’t think it was ready” because it “wasn’t up to the standards of Staci Stallings.”

I was crushed.  Looking back, I wonder if her game wasn’t going to be to sell me on someone who could “edit the book professionally.”  (I’m glad I didn’t!)  But I didn’t give her that chance.  I was sick of leaving my young children here to go out and do publicity that often turned into a nightmare.  I was tired of being told the day before that I was supposed to be at such-and-such the next day and having to round up babysitters at the last possible minute only to find out the appearance was actually for a different day or hadn’t even been scheduled.  So I cut ties with her.

That was 12 years ago.  I guess a big part of me between here and there lost faith in that story because of what she said about it. That’s why I put out 23 other books and ebooks, not really even considering putting that one out.  Then a couple of close reader friends asked about Drew’s story, and I told them about the book.  They wanted to read it, and lo and behold, they fell in love with it!  So I repackaged “Eternity,” and final-edited “The Easy Way Out” and here they are!

Finally!  After 12 LONG years!

“The Easy Way Out” is about making tough choices in life rather than skating by and hoping it will all work out.  Drew and Charity are both damaged souls.  I guess you could say the book is a life lesson in what happens when “hurting meets hurt” and how making the right decision is much more important than making the easy one.  It does have an inspiring ending and a great message, but the getting there, like life, is pretty messy.

So I guess the book is about what I’ve learned in this Odyssey—make good decisions for yourself, your life, and your family even if those decisions aren’t always the easy decision.  See, for me, I hate confrontation, and when I started, I didn’t feel like I had any power in the situation.  I thought I “had” to do what she told me I should do so I would be a “team player.”

What I didn’t realize was that 12 years later, I would still be here.  She wouldn’t.  So I made bad decisions for me to make her happy.  BAD IDEA!

The good news is, I have learned and I am learning, just like Charity does that others don’t have to like the decisions I make for my life, but I get to make them.  And I in partnership with God have to make the decisions that make the most sense for me.

So it’s been a needed Odyssey for me and for my life, my growth and my understanding.

And now, I want to pass those lessons on to three lucky readers.  Enter to win below, and three readers will win a set of “The Friendship Series” in ebook form (Kindle or Nook).

God bless you!
